Ether, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin are also being accepted online — with CEO Adam Aron vowing: "Dogecoin next."
Movie theater chain AMC has begun accepting Bitcoin and three other cryptocurrencies for its online ticket sales.
"Big newsflash! As promised, many new ways NOW to pay online at AMC. We proudly now accept: drumroll, please… Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin."
He then said that the company now also accepts Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal, adding:
"Incredibly, they already account for 14% of our total online transactions!"
It was not clear if that 14% referred to crypto sales, payment app sales, or both.
He ended the tweet by promising:
That was in response to an outcry on Twitter from fans of the memecoin after Aron announced that crypto would be accepted by the end of the year.
Aron admitted that the company has been "getting hyperactive in cryptocurrency" in October, going so far as to float the idea of issuing an AMC cryptocurrency.
"We probably play 50 to 100 big movies a year. Could we make 50 to 100 commemorative tickets that mean something to people and mean something to us, that could drive our business going forward? I think the answer is yes."
Its fortunes reversed rapidly in April, when the rowdy traders at Reddit's r/WallStreetBets community embraced it, turning AMC into a memestock as part of a grassroots campaign to punish hedge funds shorting companies like it and GameStop.
